Abstract:

In this paper, we investigate the performance issue of PNNI routing for ATM networks. A brief introduction to PNNI routing protocol is given. We extend the reduced load approximation algorithm to ATM networks with PNNI routing. A hierarchical reduced load approximation scheme is proposed. The scheme includes two steps the reduced load approximation algorithm is first applied on the aggregated network at upper level then the approximation is refined at the lower level as needed using the results from the upper level. This hierarchical scheme follows the PNNI routing framework and results a fast and scaleable algorithm.
